Since almost a year has passed I hope you dont mind my question, but do you take commisions on this quiver?

Yes, I can.  It'd be a little ways off, as I have a huge backlog of contracts I'm filling right now due to an injury to my shoulder (no hammering or hand sewing!).

I will point out it is also much larger than the screen-used ones- this will hold a couple dozen arrows, while the screen ones held about 10 arrows~

I need to look at how much leather it takes, too- as I did the first with stuff I had lying around~

how did you make this?

Well, if you see the other pictures of it flat, I basically cut the pattern out, and played with it until the shape in a full-sized piece of paper worked and looked about right. Then I checked that against the size of the arrow shafts (arrows weren't done yet~). Next, I made a paper pattern for the double-thick parts, the details on the front, and cut them out, they were glued to the other piece after I dyed them the right color, then I stitched them to the flat quiver body, as far around as I dared (not far enough... more on that later~). The inside has a second layer of leather, to stiffen the whole thing up a bit, so it was again patterned in paper. BTW- the pattern paper I usually use is grocery bags, whhich I cut up and then use a clothes iron to flatten. Use steam- they flatten out great!. The next step was to sew the extra leather piece in on one side, then- this part sucked... sew it closed- which was done half of the time from the inside. Finally, I sewed the bottom closed- and it is sewn together flat, with no pieces in between the front and back. The straps were made extra long, and attach on the back by a leather thong, so it can be adjusted. The buckle is a bit more complex- if you don't have a welding set-up, it would be pretty hard to do... I have another hanging set-up, for hanging the quiver from a belt that I have yet to finish, but will post as soon as it's done.

It's really not hard, in small pieces. Basically- each step has to be taken as a bite, and eventually, you have a finished piece!

Pretty much! Leather is really easy to learn, though- especially if you are good at making a list. I did so for this piece, and followed it- only made one mistake in the procedure, and that just made it take a little longer than I wanted, is all.

Once you get the building part down, you move on the the decorating part- now there is a skill! Called "tooling" of the leather. Drawing in low relief, basically a 3-d drawing. Very cool stuff!

yeah, i saw some amazing stuff at a Renaiscance fair, one time. ive done some small carving jobs, but none on leather before :D

:iconsgainbrachta:
sgainbrachta Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013
Well with leather- some is cutting, and some is pressing or stamping- the best is both together! And be aware that at faires, a lot of stuff you see is kinda bodged- we teach ourselves a lot of the time. You want to see some amazing stuff, go look at a saddle shop. I don't care for the style, but the skill is amazing!

I'd be happy to help with that- I did all the measurements on this one, and have figured out what the film ones size was (this is larger by a lot~). Heck, I can make it for you, or help you do so on your own!

Haha, he isn't having a very good day is he? Thanks for that complement! Maybe someday in the future I can offer you a trade for something you'd like a sculpt of, or I could commission you for something!

That has remained one of my favorite B&W movies, so it was fun to see. I do work pretty cheap, depending on what it is you are looking for, too. Well- cheap compared to most other decent custom knife makers, anyhow.

That sounds like a plan! I do know that I want a pair of handbracers for sure. I might be up for a pouch too!

:iconsgainbrachta:
sgainbrachta Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
Well, I can walk you through making them, too. It's not too expensive to get the parts and supplies, as well as tools to do so. WIth a bit of help- a couple of simple projects first, then you can do things like the bracers, no issue! They are very simple- in a complicated sort of way!
